Lynchburg Police Warn Against Scam

Lynchburg, VA - Lynchburg police are warning of a new scam involving both your phone and computer.

They say the scammers call you pretending to be computer service providers. They tell you your computer has a virus and to go to a website and click on a link.

If you do that, it gives the caller remote access to alter your computer.

Some callers are also asking credit card numbers to pay for virus removal.

If you get a call like this, police say hang up.
